Gods – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Sometime ago, a Russian Bishop called Krishna “Satan”. Many Christians say Hindus are devil worshipers. Many Muslims say Hindu gods are animals and worshipers are infidels. Atheists would call Indian gods primitive.
In their perspective, they are telling truth. The picture of Kali appears horrible for a modern westerner. Krishna, Vishnu, Shiv are dark or black guys. Many Hindu gods are ugly looking and physically handicapped. Some have extra hands, double or treble heads, tails etc. Naturally Hindu gods appear funny, ugly, bad or horrific to the modern world.
“Look at Jesus Christ – he looks so handsome, tall, trimmed beard, blue-eyed, a Caucasian or Westerner. Like a good looking Hollywood star,” an agnostic told me in comparison to.
These comparisons make Hindus unhappy, upset and angry. I get such questions related to Hindu gods and Puranas (Stories of ancient times). “Uday sir, your Rama didn’t take care of his wife. He has left her in forest to die while she was pregnant.” or “Krishna had thousands of wives.” or “Kunti had pre-marital affair and had a child!” or “The funniest part is 33.3 crores gods! The heaven should implement population control, or it would burst…” or “Uday, all gods are carrying weapons. (And still you Hindus talk about non-violence) The Puranas or stories of ancient times are about wars and killings!”Please continue reading at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N9PAGLT
